For decades, a portion of Interstate 95 was not connected. There was supposed to be a connector built between Trenton, NJ to the New York City area that would serve I-95, but the project was cancelled. So for decades, I-95 just ended in Trenton at the US 1 exit, and then it magically resumed on the New Jersey Turnpike. Now, after decades of no action, a pair of ramps was built to connect the current I-95 to the Pennsylvania Turnpike, which then connects to the New Jersey Turnpike.
This was the final project of the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956, otherwise known as the Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways. It took over 60 years to get it finished! Below, someone recorded the new I-95 ramps in both directions, and you can view them below!
